The New Look
This one's fairly obvious, no? I've been redecorating the blog. The major reason behind why (other than I like to do this from time to time) is that I wanted to combine my Heather Blake and Heather Webber blogs. It's too much to keep up both (as you may have noticed). So, Books By Heather blog is born. You can still get here through heatherwebber.blogspot.com but you can also get here through booksbyheather.net too. Fancy, huh? I'll be tweaking the look, incorporating both my writing personalities as I go along, but look for posts at least once a week (I'm planning on Mondays, but we'll see how that goes).
The Upcoming Road Trip
I hit the road on Thursday morning, headed to Malice Domestic in Bethesda, Maryland. I'm really looking forward to the conference and catching up with friends. It's about a nine hour drive, barring traffic situations, monsoons, and Dr Pepper consumed (pit stops galore). I've making my list of what to pack--Gobstoppers (yes, I'm still on a Gobstopper kick), Dr P, and some books on tape. Anyone listen to anything good lately? I like funny or romantic in the car--nothing too dark.
The Reality Check
So, some of you know son #2 runs cross-country and track. Well, recently the local paper did a big article on him (proud mom moment). Well, fast forward a week or two. Son # 2 and I are at the pediatrician for his allergy shots and as I'm signing him in, I hear, "Can I have your autograph?" So, of course I think they're talking to me. Some of the nurses know I write. And I think, "That's sweet--they bought one of my books." Yeah. Well. You see where this is going. LOL. They were talking to son #2. The nurses wanted him to sign his article. His first autograph. Very cute. And a very good way to keep me from getting any kind of swelled head.
How's your week looking? It's wet, wet, wet here.
